Vintage Drawer Bookcase

I honestly don’t know why I didn’t think of this earlier. A while ago I turned a dresser in a wardrobe and I ended up with these drawers left over. So since then I have been tripping over them in my basement. So I stacked them against a wall so I didn’t break my neck….

Hall Tree

After I made the bookcase from an early 1900’s door I was looking for another door project. A co-worker had an interior door she had been trying to get rid of. It was an original to her 1940’s house, a closet door. I couldn’t really cut the door to make another bookcase, because of the…

Door Turned Bookcase

I started to get a little tired of selling my pieces out of my house and was looking for another option. I don’t really want to deal with Etsy or Ebay. I would just rather my clients’ see the piece before they buy it. That and shipping is a pain and expensive. I started using…

Sewing Table Upcycled into a Pedestal Sink

We wanted to finish off our powder-room with a unique vanity. After scrolling through Pinterest Carrie found something she really liked. She wanted me to find an old sewing table and work it into a pedestal sink. I looked around on Facebook yard sale groups and a few yard sale apps and I found one….

Upcycled Dress-Up Station/Repurposed Dresser

I got this dresser at a yard sale and thought it was too good to pass up. It has great bones, tight construction and dovetail joints. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it at first. I thought about stripping the paint and restoring it but the veneer wasn’t salvageable. So there…

Corner Queen Headboard Benches

It just occurred to me that a corner bench would be an interesting project. I don’t actually need or really have the space for them so these were made to sell. They had to be made from queen size headboards. Anything smaller wouldn’t have given enough space for sitting. If I made them from twin…

Headboard Benches

We have a small front porch and were in the need of some simple seating. It’s just somewhere to have a beer and enjoy the sunset. I’ve been batting around a few ideas for a while but never come up with anything I liked. A few weeks ago were checking out the yard sales and…

Basement Windows Mirrors

This past Thanksgiving we were visiting with Carrie’s family in Connecticut. When we were packing to go back home to Pennsylvania, my father-in-law gave me a parting gift for my Upcycling projects. Over 20 years ago my In-laws bought and 1800’s farm house. The farm is long gone but they have the house, and it was…

Soda Crate End Table

We rearranged our furniture and realized we had a need for an end table. I wanted something unique and functional. So I designed this as an end table that also stores our family’s games in (card games, video games, chess board, ect…) I picked up some soda crates at a flea market with the idea…

Refurbished Vintage Mirror

I’ve always liked the look of an older beveled mirror. It is almost like a window into the past. The vintage plaster work really sets them apart. Slightly degraded silvering also gives them a nice feel. Do you want to make hallway feel like a haunted house? Find one with a lot of silvering missing….
